Just ordered a new WD sn850x SSD to become my new main drive replacing my 6 year old sata ssd .    Has windows 11 gotten past its growning pains for gamming and are as good or better then 10 now?    I know there was some driver issues early on and i hav't heard anything in ages.  

 

 

System

AMD  5800x  on asus b550 TUF mobo  
Asus 6800xT GPU

32 Gigs ram

 

i have hardware TPM if that matters

Some people still have issues with it, theres no reason you need to upgrade to 11.

I, and many others here, have used it since day one or before (Insider) and not experienced any of these "issues".

Windows 11 still has some issues to work out, it may be alot better than when it came out but it still has some issues here and there.

Did you ask anybody at your company if you can stay on Windows 10?

I dont use 11.

 

But theres some issues like extra telemetry (probably anyways), workarounds needed to make a local account, things like that.

I dont think it has too many issues being unstable or buggy, but theres probably still some things that dont work perfectly.

If its that much of an issue then I guess its fine, it has a couple issues but those will hopefully be fixed at some point, if you're going to upgrade next year then there will likely be less problems than there are now.

To actually answer your question without all the emotional noise you're getting elsewhere, gaming on 11 is perfectly fine. Its been fine for a long time but its still fine now.

I have used it every day since October and I'm not experiencing any issues. 

 

You might want to step back and think about your position on why you're even bothering to have an opinion in the OP's question. 

 

What are the issues with gaming on Windows 11? You've posted 5 times and haven't told him.

You might not have issues, but others might. Most major issues have been fixed by now. Its just the smaller issues that I listed why some people may not want 11.

 

Theres nothing wrong with gaming on 11, im just saying theres little reason to upgrade when 10 works just fine.

My friend has been slowly testing it in a VM. Said it runs pretty OK. But its going to be hit or miss if you have any issues. I do recall an article stating Microsoft was warning of data corruption on Windows 11 with certain hardware, Didnt look to far in because Im still on 10. I know Barnacles has stated that some features feel like they need a good polish. 

 

While its a pain just because it costs time. Windows doesn't take too long to install now days. You could always try 11 and see how it goes. If it works then great, if not go back to 10. 

I just want to sit back and watch the world burn.

In Sept or Oct it is expected that Microsoft will release a new version of Windows 11.

As an Insider, I can say that this coming up version is a nice polish to the OS.  There is nothing ground breaking, as new big feature. It is just a bunch of improvements, polish and quality of life (if you will), that all adds up, and help deliver a nicer experience overall. I recommend it.

 

For enterprise purposes, I would say, wait for that update,

For personal usage, yea, you can upgrade now.

 

My suggestions, is to update the BIOS/UEFI to the latest version, then perform a clean install of Windows 11 to start fresh and clean (of course, backup your stuff before as they'll be lost), and this will allow you to ensure that ALL your drivers are fully updated for the best experience.
